WHO WE ARE


Our founder Paul, a qualified engineer and industrial designer, has used his skills to put customers needs at the heart of many well known organisations, including mobile phone networks; supermarkets; consumer electronics manufacturers and the NHS.

We believe that sustainable design can make the world a brighter and inclusive place, with better social, economic and environmental outcomes for all. And that innovation starts with the needs of those we serve and is the process of understanding how people, places, tools and services can be combined to create the best experience and outcomes for everyone involved.

Since 2013 we've been building knowledge and connections in the energy industry, convinced we could create a fairer and greener solution for the places where we live, work and play ... the result is We Are Energy.

INSPIRATION


We recognise that many home and business owners would like to install solar panels or heat pumps and make use of the latest technologies like battery storage but don't have the savings or access to the cash to pay for them. So, we've launched a new co-operative with no upfront cost to overcome this barrier.

Vision


We Are Energy Co-operative Limited is an organisation united by a vision:-
To enable people at no upfront cost* to generate, store and efficiently use renewable energy wherever we can.

* No Upfront Cost means you currently pay nothing to install our superior solar generation and battery store system.

VALUES


WE ARE

caring

We choose to put others first and care for the well-being of our planet and its people, both now and in the future.

WE ARE

creative

We accelerate new and sustainable solutions for the world's biggest problems.

WE ARE

collaborative

We work together with individuals, communities and partners locally and around the world to make a tangible difference.

MISSION


Our mission is to build a co-operative that serves to ensure its people, partners and customers can share positive actions that help to protect our planet and deliver our vision.

We’ll do that initially by covering as many of the suitable roofs in the UK, so that all their surfaces can generate electricity using solar photovoltaic panels. We will develop tools and services to help our members use the energy they need in the most caring, creative and collaborative ways - helping to reduce energy consumption and energy costs for all.

FUTURE PLANS


In the future we plan to include food gardens as part of the installations for our customers, to help contribute to cleaning the air we breathe, storing carbon and helping lower the temperature.

And we are looking at ways to help customers collect power from wind turbines, heat water from solar collectors and generate heat for their buildings with heat pumps or hydrogen boilers.

Together with other committed organisations, we will help to build greener, smarter places to live: at home, at work and when we are out and about. A world we are proud to leave for the next generation.

We're already planning many exciting new ways to help the wider society — like donating energy to help prevent energy poverty for example.

CO-OPERATIVE


We received our co-operative society regulated status from the UK's Financial Conduct Authority in 2020 on the basis that we'll give an equal voice to all our members to help decide on our future. This includes our staff, our paying user members and consumer members - like their families - as well as our partners who help us to deliver the services we offer. Our membership is voluntary and open to all our stakeholders.

We are a business driven by values (caring, creative and collaborative) not by the payment of capital. It's no coincidence that we launched in 2020. We can't wait and sit back any longer for others to make things better for our children or soothe our conscience on the sofa of ethical consumerism. This is the decade to be active and intentional in our choices, to make our world a better place with clarity of purpose and positive action.

Cooperative enterprises build a better world

Together we are inspired to face the climate crisis and acknowledge the impact of our actions on the sustainability of our planet.

We support the United Nations sustainable development goals, especially Goal 7 that aims to ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern renewable energy.
